My car overheated slightly. Then I parked it and let it cool down now it wont start when I turn the key no sound at all any suggestions?


check water levels if possible in vehicle's battery. Check car battery is got full charge. Also check you have adequate water with a coolant in the radiator.
Most importantly check fan belts are ok.
If fan belt broke then Alternator may have stopped charging car battery, water pump may have stopped pumping cooling water around engine,and the Fan that assists cooling the radiator also most likely would stop if fan belt is broken.

Battery light and abs light on hard to steer overheating


sounds like you either lost your fan belt, or you have a seized up alternator, or belt tensioner. The fan belt [ drive belt ] turns the alternator to charge the battery, the power steering pump to make easy steering , and the water pump cooling your engine. Do you smell rubber burning? hear a squealing noise? or rattling noise. Open your engine bonnet, start the car up, and look at the drive belt and pulleys. They should all be turning. If this is the problem you will see something seized up. Also if you have let the power steering pump run out of oil, it may also be seized. Good luck with it

Belt broke then battery light came on then car started overheating....


The serpentine belt drives all your components, including the alternator (the reason for your battery light coming on) and also drives your fan and water pump (reason for overheating). So other than moving the car to the side of the road, you shouldn't drive it!

It is easy to replace - highly recommend you spend the dollar or two extra for the Gates rubber belt, since they will last longer and less prone to cracking.

Water pump is leaking, how do I replace it?


Remove the belt (remembering how it goes back on, drawing the belt routing usually works) I find it best to remove the two top shroud nuts 13mm. Also removing the air box will allow for access under the alternator. Two 10mm bolts hold in the water pump. Clean the sealing surface.. install new water pump and gasket. Re-install components. Top up lost coolant making sure air is blead out, otherwise you will run into overheating issues.. Good luck

1999 Mercury Cougar started overheating. There is no coolant loss; no water pump squeal etc. We replaced the thermostat with no effect on the overheating. It appears as if the electric radiator cooling...


My 1999 Cougar started running hot and I took it to my mechanic and he found that the water pump belt was broke. Replaced belt and all is well. Hope this help.

Noisy water pump pulley,alternator pulley..timing belt tensioner


I have a 1995 xj6....same problem. I replaced the belts, water pump, and the alternator. Still does it. As I play with the tension on the belt (belt that drives water pump, alternator) it goes away and comes back. If I remove the belt, the metal to metal screech stops. I then, with just the belt, turned the main pulley on the front of the engine, and there was the sound! The main pulley has 2 belts that run on it. Also, 2 pulley tracks. They SHOULD move simultaneously and be super meshed. But the rear one moves on its own under tension until it warms up and I guess, the bushing maybe expands. Now.....how do I fix it??????

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee : Replaced Water Pump and Drive Belt now Jeep won't start?


When you replaced the Water Pump, did you replace the Timing Belt? Any time you replace a Water Pump you have to replace the timing belt because it stretches out. If you did not then most likely your Engine is out of time and there for will not start, but it will turn over. hope this helps, good luck.
